LibriVox recording of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
Jane Eyre is a masterpiece of romance and hardship, penned by beloved author Charlotte Brontë. From a childhood spent as a dependent relation amongst cruel relatives and then as a student at a spirit-crushing charity school, Jane grows to become a remarkable woman: poor and plain in an era that viewed women as little more than ornaments, she believes in her own worth and craves independence and adventure. She becomes governess to a little girl at Thornfield Hall and falls in love with the brooding, Byronic master, Mr. Rochester: a man who hides a terrible secret in Thornfield’s attic. A favorite of readers everywhere since its publication in 1847, Brontë’s novel is one of the most enduring classics of all time. (Summary by Elizabeth Barr)

This dramatic reading of Jane Eyre is marvelous. The plot is perhaps well known: Jane Eyre takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall where she finds love, deception and danger.
The lead characters are very well acted, and the supporting cast is pretty darn good too. Very enjoyable.
